In October Dalton releases Dear Mr Watterson by Joel Allen Schroede.

Of American newspaper comic strips, few great ones have been so short-lived, and yet so enduring in the public, than "Calvin and Hobbes" by Bill Watterson. This film explores the strip, its special artistic qualities and its extraordinary lasting appeal decades after its conclusion. Furthermore, the film explores the impact of Bill Watterson, a cartoonist with high artistic ideals and firm principles who defied the business conventions of a declining medium. Although he forwent a merchandising fortune for his strip, various associates and colleagues speak about how Watterson created a legacy that would be an inspiration for years to come

Dear Mr Watterson

Joel Allen Schroeder, VS 2013Wanneer de dagelijkse strip 'Calvin & Hobbes' in 1985 voor het eerst verscheen in de kranten, veroverden de kleine jongen en zijn knuffeldier meteen de harten van jong én oud over de hele wereld. Op het hoogtepunt van zijn populariteit verscheen de strip in 2400 kranten wereldwijd en bereikte hij miljoenen fans. Op 31 december 1995 zette tekenaar Bill Watterson de reeks onverwacht stop. De druk om de strip en de figuurtjes van Calvin en Hobbes te commercialiseren, iets waar Watterson van gruwelde, werd te groot. Watterson leidt sindsdien een teruggetrokken leven en vermijdt alle contact met de media.

 

'Dear Mr. Watterson' is een eerbetoon aan het nalatenschap van Bill Watterson. De film vertelt hoe 'Calvin & Hobbes' de stripwereld in de jaren '80 en '90 voorgoed veranderde en hoe de strip sindsdien nog niets aan populariteit heeft ingeboet.

 

Pers

"This affectionate doc includes some insightful points about the declining state of comic strips." The Hollywood Reporter

“The film offers not only an in-depth look at the comic strip's unique influence but also a concise snapshot of the dwindling state of newspapers and their "funny pages.” L.A. Times

“Schroeder tracks the end of innocence in much the same way that the strip captured it each time out (..) he hardly makes a spectacle out of Watterson's secluded tendencies. The pileup of interview subjects speak eloquently on his behalf.” indieWIRE
